The Republic of Benin is considered by the international experts as one of the more stable nations in Africa, thanks to its political and constitutional institutions. This state is extending its peace and stability tentacles to other domains like education, religion and obviously the information technology. This is within this good environment for developing digital projects that the maker lab named “BloLab” was born.
At 8AM this morning we are at the CRETFP (Regional college for technology education and vocational training) in Dapaong to meet with the responsible persons for this school and those of Jump Lab’Orione, YovoTogo and the Tandjouaré-Dapaong Rotary Club. The goal of this meeting is to define the conditions under which the “FabLab-OrthoLab” project will be implemented, this project including a computer room, an incubator for digital activities, supplemented by a 3D printing unit to produce parts for the disabled children orthopedic center of Bombouaka.
On today’s agenda, we plan to visit three out of the seven training rooms which have been implemented until last year. We start with the one in the Bombouaka high school, then those of Tandjouaré and finally those of Nano. Generally the attendance rate as well as the equipment follow up are satisfactory.
Between October 14th and November 4th, three members of the YovoTogo association stayed at the Saint Louis Orione Center of Bombouaka, a place nicknamed “forgotten hearts heaven”.As often as possible, and depending on the availability of a decent Internet Connexion, they shared with us pictures and comments around the key points of their day-to-day activities. Hereafter their breathless diary.
